Official: Man City Complete Mahrez Signing From Leicester
Manchester City have completed the signing of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City for a club-record £60m.
The 27-year-old has signed a five-year deal to become the Blues’ first recruit since they won the Premier League.
“I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola,” Mahrez told the club’s website.
“Watching them from afar has been a pleasure. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is perfect for me, and City’s performances last season were outstanding. They’re redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it.
“I think we can be successful over the coming years and I believe my own game can develop under Pep’s management.”
Mahrez becomes the most expensive player in Manchester City’s history, replacing French defender Aymeric Laporte who joined the club for £57m in January.
